The Nassau BOCES Educational Foundation is offering you an opportunity
to have a
positive impact on the lives of students in Nassau County.
Nassau BOCES (The Board of Cooperative Educational Services of Nassau
one of 37 BOCES which were created to provide shared services to the
school districts of
New York State. With over 130 programs and services in 56 school
districts, Nassau BOCES
programs range from its more than twelve Special Education schools to
the Long Island
High School of the Arts for gifted and talented students. While we are
very proud of our
excellent special education and career and technical education programs,
the fact is Nassau
BOCES is much, much more than that! Alternative high schools, such as
Parenting Program and a premier Outdoor and Environmental Education
supplementary, hands-on science experiences outside the classroom, are
just two of the
unique BOCES programs that reach thousands of Long Island students.
With no taxing authority, Nassau BOCES relies only on the fees and
tuition it charges
its school districts. In order to enable school districts to participate
in as broad a range of
programs as possible to meet the needs of their students, BOCES is
committed to keeping
its operating costs down to a minimum. But school district budgets are
being stretched to the limit,
and sometimes valuable enriching experiences are lost to Long Island
That’s why the Nassau BOCES Educational Foundation (NBEF) was created in
July of 2006.
We now have 19 members on our Board, many with previous charitable board
We are all volunteers – no one receives compensation of any kind.
With the money raised from successful fund raising efforts – golf tournaments and
a Gala honoring Long Islanders who made enduring contributions to
the NBEF has funded nine outstanding educational programs. These
programs, chosen from
dozens of grant applicants, were selected because of their creativity,
the broad scope of their
missions and their replicability.
This is your opportunity to join in partnership with the NBEF by providing
your support in the form of a sponsorship for the Golf Tournament!
We know we are not the only charity asking for your help, but if
you choose to be a sponsor,
you are also choosing to make a profound difference in the lives of the
students in Nassau
County. For that, the students, the staff and the Foundation Board would
be forever grateful!
